Students will be required to research their topic in the scientific journals and shall incorporate no less than three (3) scientific journal articles of their assigned topic in their paper. The paper shall contain no less than 1,500 to 2,000 words, which s/he will be the sole author.

The paper requires that you present the facts about which you have read. These facts, however, must come from what you have read in those articles and only those articles. No other sources, including the textbook, are allowed. Aside from the Introduction and Conclusion, I expect each paragraph to have at least one citation in it directing the reader to the source of the information contained. It is expected that students will construct their papers in such a way as to have all three articles represented equally. The Introduction and Conclusion shall consist of no more than one page each.
All journal articles used to construct this paper 1) cannot be more than 15 years old, and 2) must be cited in the text of the paper and properly referenced, and 3) they MUST be submitted electronically along with the paper. There are no exceptions to this rule!
The paper requires students to compose a literature review on the three approved peer-reviewed journal articles submitted in Writing Assignment #1. This review must come from what was read in those articles and only those articles. No other sources, including the textbook, are allowed. Late assignments will be accepted for scoring only during the seven days immediately following the due date, and they will be assessed a 10-point penalty for each day or portion thereof the paper is late.
The finished paper must contain no less than1,500 words, of which the student will be the sole author.
Topic Papers will have the following sections:
No more than one page
The paper must be paraphrased in the words of the student with proper paraphrase citations, i.e., (Ruiz, 2008). Students must learn to paraphrase and put information into their own words. This is a valuable research skill that students will need in the field of Criminal Justice. View these tips and examples from the PSU Library to avoid plagiarism (Links to an external site.).
It is required that students compose their papers in such a way as to have all three articles represented equally.
